It’s sucking pickles off the sun,
spring buds & ﬂu snot -
All I needed was one good excuse.
Didn’t know what I missed till I tasted chartreuse.
It’s grassy beer,
lemon-lime shadow —
The perfect shade to guzzle & seduce.
Life is chartreuse.
Come with me, run,
we’ll go mouth-to-mouth anytime you choose ...
And I'll thumb a ride —
escape, call a truce —
Forget I’m the careful monk,
the ignorant blissful,
drink it all down thanking god
I’m close, I’m close, I’m close ...
